Fantastic scenery and history

I am from Rotorua. I took my 13yr old granddaughter for her birthday. It was a fantastic outing. So much local knowledge and an entertaining commentary. I would recommend it to anyone young or old. Definitely worth the money.

Fantastic

This is one of the best tours I've ever been on without a doubt. Funny, informative, interesting, and engaging. Learnt about the amazing history of the machine itself. Learnt about Rotorua and it's environs. Learn masses about volcanoes and the history in the central north island. And saw some beautiful scenery and laughed a lot. Money very well spent.
